Today we celebrate:

Lucky Penny Day – Pennies are made from copper, or at least they used to be, I don't know if they still are. Anyway, copper represented the Greek God Venus and the Greeks believed it could protect against evil and attract love. Therefore, finding a penny meant you were protected from evil and might find love soon. That is what makes them lucky. Keep your eyes peeled for pennies today, maybe they still have enough copper in them so that their power still works.

National Taffy Day – Taffy is soft, and chewy and can be many different flavors. See if you can find some today, it would make a great dessert.

Declaration Of The Bab Day – On this day the Baha'is celebrate from sunset last night to sunset tonight. They are celebrating the origins of their faith which began in 1844 when Siyyid Ali-Muhammad announced that he was the bearer of a Divine Revelation, which would prepare humanity for the arrival of the Promised One which has been foretold by all the world's religion.

World Crohn's and Colitis Day - This day was created by Josh Golder in 2007 and is recognized by the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Josh has Crohn's disease and is a prominent figure in the Crohn's community. This day is about bringing together people who have been affected by either disease as well as their friends and family to spread awareness of these diseases.

World Turtle Day – This day is sponsored by American Tortoise Rescue and has been around since 2000. The idea for today is to encourage people to take action to help turtles and tortoises survive.

To celebrate today, read about the Baha religion and find out if the Promised One is going to come anytime soon. Then find out where you can go to help turtles and tortoises and then go there and help the turtles and tortoises. While you are out and about doing all that turtle helping, watch out for pennies. If you find any give them to the turtles because they apparently need the good luck more than you do. When you get home, tell someone you know about Crohn's disease and Colitis so you can spread awareness and then share some taffy with your family.
